Inspiration for my Red-Eyed Tree Frogs
I have always had a great love of animals and frogs have to be amongst the most charismatic of them all. They always make me smile – as I’m sure they do many people. My original idea was based on a common garden frog – but the wonderful shape of the tree frog stole my attention. This small Tree Frog Pendant is a popular member of my collection. It is small and comfortable enough to wear with almost every outfit and to almost any venue – but it retains the big character of my original Red-Eyed Tree Frog Pendant (nicknamed Quasimodo).
Once I finished my large frog, I had a cascade of requests for other tree frog themed jewellery – the first of which being Tree Frog Rings. Then, when asked for a smal tree frog pendant, I used as a starting point the wax of the side-facing tree frog ring. So you may spot a similarity in their faces… Like identical twins. The first version I modelled was the one with the leg tucked in. But inevitably, I received a request for a small version of Quasi – leg stretched out. And so now the choice is yours.
What my customers say:
“Mr Frog arrived safely and he is beautiful. I admire your modelling and casting skills. My father was a sculptor and did a little silver jewellery, just for the family. I often helped him moulding and casting things and I know how difficult it can be – especially getting a superb finish. I take my metaphysical hat off to you.”
